Near Conference Lead
The Michigan baseball team will
open a two-game series with Ohio
State at Columbus today. The sec-
ond game will be played Saturday.
The Buckeyes will return to Ann
Arbor for a two-game series May 11
and 12.
Coach Fisher's infield will remain
the same with Wistert on first when
he doesn't pitch, Paulson at second,
Waterbor at short, and Oliver at
third. Joe Lerner will be stationed at
first base when Wistert is in the box.
Lerner is the only sophomore who is
breaking into the lineup, and he has
shown improvement in every game
he's played, both in the field and at
the plate.
Michigan's outfield rates with the
best in the Conference. No other
outer garden boasts two as capable
hitters as the Artz-Petoskey duo.
Regeczi is a fine fielder and he's hit-
ting just a little under the .300 mark.
Wistert Or Patchin
Wistert or Patchin will pitch to-
day, with the idle pitcher coming
back against the Buckeyes tomorrow.
Chapman, who has caught every inn-
ing of the eight games played to date,
will be the receiver. Getting off to
a slow start, Chapman is rapidly be-
ginning to hit well. His three hits in
the second Northwestern game werej
largely responsible for the Wolver-
ines' victory.
If the Wolverines can take both
games from Ohio State, which is
highly probable, they will be in a
fine position to battle the league
leading Illini for the lead, when Il-
linois appears here May 5.

Drysdale Is Backstroke Star
Drysdale was a star member of the
1932 and 1934 swimming teams which
won National Collegiate titles. He is
the holder of the national Big Ten
and backstroke titles and recently set
a new American record for the 300-
yard medley swim. He placed sec-
ond in the National A.A.U. back-
stroke event this year.
Renner, while not as conspicuous a
star as his teammate, has been a
mainstay of the squad for two years.
A freestyle sprinter, he has devoted
most of his time to the relay events.
He swam anchor on the 400-yard re-
lay team which this year won both
the Big Ten and National Collegiate
titles, as well as being a member of
the Big Ten championship medley
relay team.
Jack Blott Honored
At Detroit Banquet
Jack Blott, Varsity football line
coach and former All-American cen-
ter for Michigan, was honored by the
University of Michigan Club of De-
troit at a testimonial dinner last
night at the University Club.
Blott, who is leaving the University
in June, has accepted a position as
head football coach at Wesleyan Uni-
versity, Middletown, Conn.
Irving Cy Huston and Frederick C.
Matthaei, club president, formulated
the arrangements for the dinner.
LE VAN HURLING PROSPECT
Garry LeVan, Princeton's football-
lugging ace of last fall, is one of the
Princeton Tiger's leading baseball
pitchers this spring.

put up a great fight, as he always did,
but Tilden was just too big, and too
good at covering court to be seriously
damaged by Johnston's chop-shots
and he won. Again the usual thing.
THE THIRD TILDEN MATCH I
witnessed was in 1927, or 1928,
when that great group of French
players was threatening the old mas-
ter's supremacy. It was at Forest Hills,
and I had to usher in the Stadium
to see that one. The day was very
hot, and the ushers had to wait
around for hours before the match.
But I saw them get that center grass-
court ready for competition. It was
watered and hand-pruned with a care
which might well be emulated by a
barber.
The match was well worth all the
waiting. Tilden looked very tired,
and Rene Lacoste, that cool French-
man with the peaked cap cocked rak-
ishly to the side stroked Tilden to a
standstill with a steady driving game.
Lacoste won in either four or five sets.
Again, I can'tremember. But it was
easily the best tennis I have ever seen.
Now Lacoste and Johnston are
names of the past in tennis, but Til-
den is still going along.
It is high time that the maestro
began to reap the reward of his gen-
ius, hitherto garnered by the U.S.-
L.T.A., and various clubs. It is time
that he turned professional, and he
is to be congratulated for doing so.
He comes to Ann Arbor with his old-
time power practically undimmed, for
he has improved since he began play-
ing for money. Yes, his exhibition
with Ellsworth Vines should be an
Event.
Doherty Will Hold
Frosh Time Trials
In the first of a series of events
that will climax the freshman track
season, Coach Ken Doherty will hold
time trials for his yearling thinclads
tomorrow afternoon. On Thursday,
May 3, a telegraphic dual meet with
Illinois will be held, and on Saturday,
May 11, Ohio State and Indiana will
be met in a triangular meet over the
wires.
One of the features of tomorrow's
trials will be the appearance of Sam
Stoller in the 100-yard dash. Stoller

record in the Drake Relays this year.
Led by Sidney Dean, the Hawkeyes
will enter the mile relay with an ex-
cellent chance of winning.
Hawkeye mile relay teams have
won the event at six .of the past 11
Drake carnivals. The Iowa team,
however, will find plenty of compe-
tition from Michigan's quartet of
Ellerby, Patton, Lemen and Smith, as
well as from Illinois, Indiana, Notre
Dame and Minnesota.
If it were possible for all the ath-
letes who have helped to establish
Drake records to return to Des Moines
as the honored guests of the silver an-
niversary relays, a host of 31,396
men would visit Des Moines, repre-
senting almost every state in the un-
ion and a dozen foreign countries.
A study of records established over
a 13-year period beginning in 1921
between the Drake and Penn relays
shows that contestants at Drake are
33 per cent stronger than those in the
east. Western athletes have excelled
in 105 events.
